A group dedicated to rapists called “Raper Association” surfaced on the social media platform, and humanity has never been questioned more.
Rape has been a nuisance in our society with new cases of it surfacing in the news in a daily basis. While many of us are trying to raise our voices and fight against this gruesome crime, there are some who are not only encouraging the perpetrators (rapists) but also belittling the effort of the fight against rape.
Yesterday, a Facebook user by the name of “Rajat” brought a facebook group called “Rapers Association”, to the attention of the public. Some of the graphic contents in the group consists members joking about rape, threatening to rape the President’s relatives and even ridiculing the efforts made by activists to combat rape. The group when found had 103 members in it.
If we recycle trash, we can get CNG, what does one do with those who have created a #SocialMedia account to exchange rapist experiences/ promoting rape - Rapers Association?— Navita Srikant (@NavitaSrikant) October 12, 2020
Requesting GoN to take strict action. @hello_sarkar @NepalPoliceHQ #Nepal https://t.co/F1REOMmWjY
The group has been reported to the Nepal Police and Facebook since it surfaced. It is extremely disheartening to witness people have such mentality and joke about such issues when so many people have fallen victim to the crime.
